    for this one i had to use 2 drive shafts, i ripped them apart, take one of the short pieces, cut the male end off. glue the male end into one of the long peices, throw away the extra short end, slide the other long end on(dont glue this one). and you can trim the long pieces to length beforehand.

    This sounds interesting ! How much longer? What is your new overall length? and wheelbase? We need pics!!! So you need to beg, borrow, or steal a camera somewhere

    For a minute there I thought that looked like my broken chassis from a few weeks ago . Only mine was broke in the front. Keep us posted on the progress, and yes we need better pics so we can make out more of the details . The current pics are kind of scary

    outch, if its wide enough probly worth it, but dang.
    what i did cost too though, got to get those traxxas tubes, for turnbuckels, your going to be tenfold cheaper and easier to go with the kershaw kit even with that shipping, hope that helps.
    also 1/2" off set rims will help, mabey a combo of both would do it.
